Abstract:This chapter discusses decision making under uncertainty. More specifically, it offers an overview of efficient Bayesian and distribution-free algorithms for making nearly-optimal sequential decisions under uncertainty about the environment. Due to the uncertainty, such algorithms must not only learn from their interaction with the environment, but also perform as well as well as possible while learning is taking place.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
